Turkey to launch ecolabel for textile

Turkey will launch its ecolabel certification allowing consumers to identify environment-friendly products. The official from the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanization said the ministry has already completed a project aimed to integrate Turkey’s legislation into the European Union’s ecolabel legislation.

A closing ceremony of the Establishment of the National Environmental Labeling System will be held in the capital Ankara on January 11. During the event, winners for the National Ecolabel Logo Competition will be announced. Eighty-five logos are competing for the prize.

At the very first level of its implementation, three products in Turkey—textile, ceramics and paper industry—will get environmental labeling. Products from seven firms, including two firms in the textile sector, two in the paper sector and three in the ceramic sector, will be ecolabeled. An ecolabel system covers every stage of production, starting from the procurement of the raw material.
